Coffee, chocolate and gin lovers… we have something for you.
There is something very comforting about chocolate, coffee and gin — more so when they’re all together in a much beloved dessert: tiramisu.
After following Regina Fatkulina for some time, we asked if she’d indulge us with a dessert recipe since we’ve lusted after her waffles, baklava, gingerbread cookies and more on her Instagram feed. She decided to bring out the blackberry notes in our botanicals by reinventing the classic Italian dessert to balance the creamier chocolate and coffee flavours with something slighty tart but sugary all the same. The crunch from the biscuits marries beautifully with the thick cream and fresh blackberries that add yet a bit more texture. We’d recommend having a longer look at My Tasty Stories, her blog for more wholesome and seasonal recipes as you sit with your tiramisu and a classic G&T…
Brockmans Gin Tiramisu
By Regina Fatkulina
Servings: 4 glasses
Cooking time: 40 minutes
Ingredients for the syrup:
- 1 cup/250ml of brewed coffee
- 3 tbsp of Brockmans Premium Gin
- 2 tbsp of sugar
For the mascarpone filling:
- 8 oz/225g of mascarpone cheese
- 4 oz/30ml of heavy whipping cream
- ¼ cup/30g of powdered sugar
For the layers:
- Half package of lady fingers cookies, 3-4 oz (75-125g)
- 4 oz/125g of fresh blueberries and blackberries
- Cocoa powder
- In a medium bowl stir in the hot brewed coffee, Brockmans Gin and sugar. Mix well until sugar has dissolved, set aside.
- In a stand mixer or hand mixer whip the mascarpone cheese along with heavy cream and powdered sugar (you may add more powdered sugar, if needed) until soft peaks form. Don’t overmix the mixture.
- Soak the lady fingers in a prepared coffee syrup and place them on the bottom of each glass. Feel free to break the cookies if they don’t fit. Spread the small amount of mascarpone cream, sprinkle some cocoa powder and place the berries on top. Repeat all the layers until you get to the top of the glass. Finish decorating the last layer with mascarpone, cocoa powder and a couple of berries.
- Place the tiramisu in the fridge for at least 2 hours before serving.
